My Approach to Helping

I am a Board-Certified, Adult Psychiatrist with a passion for treating patients suffering from mood disorders.

During my psychiatry rotation in medical school, I noted that psychiatric treatment allowed a physician to look holistically at a patient and figure out how to best treat them, vs. pinpointing one specific ailment. I was drawn to this opportunity to treat the whole person and found that incredibly rewarding. I believe psychiatry can elevate the human condition directly by aiding in relief from emotional pain, anxiety, sadness, and suffering.

In treating patients, I aim to build a working alliance towards treatment goals, offering the most appropriate and effective treatments. I am highly seasoned in helping patients manage their medication regimen and finding the best combination to provide relief.

More Info About My Practice

I first began to focus on depression and mood disorders when I noticed the toll depression has taken on the population as a whole. While I have successfully treated many patients with medication, I believe that Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive therapy that provides more robust treatment options. With this growing technological advancement that allows treatments to be more specific to the brain regions involved in psychiatric disorders, I see that TMS will likely be used as a tailored treatment beyond depression.

I am currently seeing patients at TMS Health Solutions clinic in Burlingame. TMS Health Solutions is a leading outpatient psychiatry group practice dedicated to freeing patients from the burden of mental illness. Our practice is focused on depression and is Northern California's leading provider of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), a highly effective, FDA-cleared, non-invasive therapy for patients who haven't responded to antidepressants and other treatments. Additionally, our clinics offer comprehensive psychiatry services, including medication management, for people with clinical depression and other mental health conditions. We accept most major insurance plans. We have locations throughout Northern California.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I treat patients who are suffering from Advanced Depression with Medication Management and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).

Groups I Work With

    I treat patients with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), also known as “clinical depression.” MDD is usually treated with talk therapy andor medication; however, a key clinical study shows that over 40% of these patients might not respond to medication as they suffer from a condition called Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD). These patients need to seek an alternative treatment for their symptoms. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an alternative treatment for MDD that has been shown to be safe and effective for those with TRD. I focus on treating these patients with TMS and helping them find relief and recovery from the confines of depression.
